A Covington woman was arrested Tuesday in connection with a June 25 fight caught on video in which a 52-year-old Conyers woman was sliced on the face and abdomen and stabbed, according to Conyers Police Lt. Jackie Dunn.

Tracey Heard, 35, was arrested on a charge of aggravated assault at a Covington residence.

"She's admitted to the incident, basically stating that she'd been drinking and smoking and doesn't know why she did what she did," said Dunn.

Heard and the 52-year-old woman were not acquaintances, said Dunn.

"She felt like the other lady kept disrespecting her," he said.

The fight occurred about 8:30 p.m. on June 25 after a group of people gathered on a porch at 1078 Adcock Circle.

"At some point, the three suspects rode by and were invited to join the group on the porch, which they did," said Dunn.

Heard and the 52-year-old victim got into an argument.

According to Dunn, one person recorded what ensued on a camera phone.

"The video reflects the suspect standing over (the victim) as she's sitting on the couch on the porch," said Dunn. "You see her take a couple of swipes at (the victim)'s neck, at which point she tries to get up and flee."

Heard then reportedly got up and stabbed the victim with what appeared to be a razor.

Two other Covington women were previously arrested, including Latoya Darty, 35, of Covington, and charged with being a party to the crime.

Dunn said the person recording the incident thought it would not turn violent. "Mostly he thought it was going to be a cat fight," said Dunn.

The victim was reportedly stabbed and sliced six or seven times on the face, neck, and from the armpit to the waist. The victim was flown to an Atlanta trauma hospital. She is home recovering, said Dunn.
